Learn more about the sky at night and our wonderful dark sky environment at this free event. Bring your own binoculars or telescope if you have them. A number of telescopes will also be set up to show a selection of planets, star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae. This event occurs around the peak of the Geminids meteor shower, so you might see some shooting stars, too! This is a free event, but booking is essential.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
